Sermon Points: We Need Giants
- Why we need things that strengthen us.
- Some doors are obvious, some are not
- We must keep walking; we must get close
- It's a picture of faith; it doesn't look like you can do it.
- Promises are protected from those who are half-hearted (keep walking in faith)
- Abram (Abraham) left everything to follow God's direction and promises.
- given the Promised Land
- name will be great
- will be blessed
- will be made a great nation
- will be a blessing
- Are we willing to leave or do we say, "No, I'm fine?"
- "We must change the we think, the way we inform ourselves and obey."
- The promises of God will make us into something great.
- The promises of God release His blessing on us and cause our life to be significant.
- We become blessed and become a blessing to the world around us.
- Grace is given, we explore it by faith.
- The 10 spies went to Canaan and 8 gave a bad report while 2 spoke in faith.
- Be careful what you say about what you see.
- When you are afraid, everything seems scary.
- Trust in God's ability to open doors for us and through us.
- It may look like we are surrounded (by enemies), but we are surrounded by Him (God).
- Giants (enemies) are always around us.
- Trust God, He is with us (our weapon)
- Only see giants when advancing
- Our Promise Land is being conformed to Christ
- Live our lives in love and walking and carrying the blessings of God wherever we go.
- Giants who keep us from being conformed to the image of God
- "I'm right."
- what's in it for me
Romans 8:31 Amplified Bible (AMP)31 What then shall we say to all these things? If God is for us, who can be [successful] against us?
Romans 8:34 Amplified Bible (AMP)34 Who is the one who condemns us? Christ Jesus is the One who died [to pay our penalty], and more than that, who was raised [from the dead], and who is at the right hand of God interceding [with the Father] for us.
When you are in a big trial remember Jesus is interceding for us (praying).
